Nice stay.
Lovely stay at Tower Hotel. Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location for graduation visit.

Too noisy on a summer evening
Lovely old hotel. Would have had no complaints but as it was a warm evening we slept with window open as no aircon. Drinkers were moved on at about 10.45 so presumably the two groups outside beneath our window were guests. It was their weekend away too so didn’t complain & fell asleep around midnight. Woken at 2am by talking outside. Don’t think that’s acceptable

Great location but loud
Great location, literally opposite the castle walls and very close to the cathedral. It is a couple of minutes from the top of Steep Hill and nearby there were plenty of pubs and restaurants. To get to the chain restaurants and High St required a walk downhill and the cinema in the Brayford Pool area was a 15-20 minute walk but it was doable in flat shoes. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and the staff were friendly. The inclusive breakfast was fine, nothing special but completely adequate with a wide window for availability times (not just one hour as I’ve had elsewhere). The only downside to this hotel is the noise. The bar below is extremely popular and seemed busy from mid afternoon onwards, with the inevitable shouting and noise and the double glazing hardly filtered it. There’s not a lot that can be done about that, it’s summer and drinkers can be loud outside, but if you like an early night or you need your sleep for work - be warned! We arrived by train and got a taxi both ways due to the steep hills involved. It cost between £4.80 and £6. This is a reasonably priced hotel in a pleasant and convenient location. I recommend it.

A very friendly and comfortable hotel and a simply delicious evening meal. They take a lot of care with the presentation of food. I've never eaten such a gorgeous banana soufflé! All very modestly priced too.

Exceptional 10.0
The staff are very friendly, the bar and food is very very good. Clean and rooms very nice. Just 5-10mins from Lincoln Cathedral and castle. If come by train get a taxi to the hotel as it is a challenge pulling your case up Steep Hill, even without a case it is a challenge. Would recommend this hotel.

Pleasant stay at the Tower Hotel
The Tower Hotel is ideally situated in the Cathedral Quarter of Lincon. The hotel was clean, well presented and the staff were friendly, polite and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
